At this year’s event, we are asking: Are we entering a new phase of the global financial crisis which began in 2008?
Deteriorating economic conditions across the emerging markets, fed by commodity price volatility, are producing a fragile environment for trade. Conversely, the highly liquid banking sector and an insurance market soft to the point of overcapacity, presents different challenges.
ExCred26 will gather the leading minds from across export finance and PRI to address where financing gaps remain, the risk appetite of participants and the impact on trade of geopolitical events across the globe.

On Friday 16th October 2015 Jamie Smith QC, 4 New Square will give a talk on Continuity of Insurance Coverage under English Insurance Law
Insurable interest is the most recent topic of attention of the Law Commission team responsible for the Consumer Insurance (Disclosure and Representations) Act 2012 and the Insurance Act 2015.
This “double-header” lecture will consider the case for and against abolition of the doctrine of insurable interest, with a particular focus on interests in life assurance.
As a topic, insurable interest continues to be discussed and (occasionally) litigated as new forms of insurance product (and new examples of the perverse incentives insurance can create) arise. Comparable jurisdictions (e.g. Australia) have largely abolished the requirement of an insurable interest without alarm.
Insurable interest may have a significant role to play in establishing the boundary between insurance and other risk-related contracts such as gambling and credit default swaps.
